orleans, louisiana. why those two markets? because they are television markets in state with democrat senators up for election last year, defending their votes on the affordable care act. there's no rhyme or reason for the television buys except let's go on the offense. most of the advertising dollars will be spent in states with republican governors, all i think designed to try and mitigate the political impact of the affordable care act by running a taxpayer-funded, multihundred million dollars worth of television ads to boost a program the american people do not like. >> you know, i usually like to be right about things, karl. but this is the one instance where i hope all my thoughts about this and all my study is dead wrong. i hope in the end that this turns out that i'm dead wrong on all this stuff. it looks -- there are a lot of reasons to be concerned that this obama care is not going to do what so many americans really need. let me ask you about something else. the irs. and their refusal to answer questions. nonprofit news organization are now suing the irs under a freedom of

duck dynasty. the series follows a wildly successful family-run company in louisiana that manufactures duck calls. on wednesday, the show's fourth season premier shattered cable tv records for reality shows 11.8 million people tuned in. half of those in the critical 18 to 49 demographic. the show also lights up social media and it has its own hugely popular product line. what explains the success? what's the allure of watching a bunch of long-haired rednecks sitting around teasing each other talking about their business, relationships and family lives? there is no nudity. pretty much no foul language. and no celebrity drop-byes. first, this is my theory. the duck dynasty characters are genuinely funny, but it's not always the obvious slapstick stuff. the dialogue can be really ironic, too. the robertson family comes across as unrehearsed, no nonsense, and warm. yet, there is another explanation for this mega hit. the show's focus on family, country and faith. each episode, in fact, ends with a prayer. >> let's pray. father, we thank you for this night and we thank you for the blessing
